The current product portfolio of SUMIDA flexible connections includes the company’s 4 to 25-pin PANTA SMD jumpers and a new development in the form of its PANTA SMD jumpers with a 0.5mm pitch, (see image), which are available with 8 to 50 pins. The SMD jumper represents both a cost-effective alternative to rigid-flex printed circuit boards and a technically optimised solution to replace step-milled printed circuit boards. The jumpers are optimised for automatic assembly in high volumes and are supplied as individual units in blister packs on a roll so that they can be removed and positioned in a pick and place process. While conventional flexible connecting elements are manually inserted into printed circuit boards before being further processed using a separate selective soldering process, PANTA SMD jumpers can be directly placed on the printed circuit board and soldered using the standard reflow process. The fact that the soldering result and positional accuracy of the jumpers can also be checked during the AOI process eliminates the need for a subsequent visual inspection.
